This article focuses on earthquake-triggered individual landslides and slope seismic responses,and is the continuation of"Earthquake-triggered Landslides across Mainland China Before the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake". Individual landslides or stability of slopes under seismic forces in cases before the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake are reviewed in detail using the following approaches:1) geological analysis of real earthquake- triggered landslides or slope stability analysis under seismic forces; 2) conventional computational mechanics analysis,including the Newmark method and ultimate equilibrium method; 3) finite element analyses,such as Geo Studio and FLAC platforms; 4) discrete element analyses,such as UDEC and other programs applied in the filed of seismic landslides; and 5) physical models. This review aims to provide references for similar studies in the future.
